(UPI) Police said four persons were killed and at least three others critically wounded late Tuesday by a former mental patient who' used a hatchet, concrete Mock, knife and gun on victims in four houses in this small community. One victim was raped. The suspect then pushed an elderly woman from her bed at the Muldrow Nursing Home and hid under the sheets from police. The elderly woman was the mother of one of the men attacked. "Help me! Help me! They're after me and I don't know why!" police said the suspect shouted to the woman as he pulled her from the bed, leaped in himself and pulled the sheets over his head. The suspect was identified by police as Luther Anderson, 25, a patient last April at a mental hospital in Vihita, Okla., who went AWOL after only a few days of treatment. As authorities reconstructed the attacks, the killer first went to the home of Frank Mitchell, 34, on the eastern edge of town. Mitchell wa» beaten with a blunt object and is reported in critical condition at a Fort Smith, Ark., hospitaj, He next went to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Duty, where he killed Duty with an ax and stabbed Mrs. Dobie Duty and raped their 30-year-old daughter-in-law, police said. Mrs. Duty also is in critical condition in Fort Smith. Working his way through the town, the killer shot R.J. Hewett and his wife, Jessie, to death and threw Hewett's body through a window. , Somewhere during the evening, between 7 p .m. and 10 p .m., he also killed George Armstrong, apparently beating him to death. . The elderly woman forced out of bed at the nursing home was Mitchell's mother. Police said Anderson ap- ' peared to have been drinking. They said they had not been able to establish a motive for the slayings. Dr. D.R.W. Shupe, administrator of Eastern State Hospital in Vihita, said Anderson was AWOL from the hospital, but was not considered an escapee. "Under no circumstances is he an escapee," Shupe said. "This man was a voluntary patient in April, 1974, and remained for 13 days. He ^progressed very well, but went AWOL after 13 days. _ "That does not make him an escapee. He was on an open ward. He was .doing well, but he decided to walk away." BUENOS AIRES (UPI) — Tens of thousands of mourners were drenched today by a prolonged thunderstorm but stood firm in their determination to get a last view of the remains of Juan D. Peron, lying in state in the National Assembly building.

Most of them were working people, who had supported Peron for 30 years. President Maria Estela (Isabel) Peron, widow of the late president who died Monday of a heart attack and his successor in office, ordered a one-day extension of the time his body would lie in state in order to permit more of his followers to pay their last respects. Christian Daveri, 18, the last person on the line at 7:30 a.m. (6:30a.m.EDT) said, "we must all unite behind Isabel, Peron's plans and projects must continue". The thunderstorm doused the tiny fires the people had built to keep warm in the southern hemisphere winter. Weeping groups of men women and children were quickly ushered past the bier so as many as possible could see the remains. Police and civilian guards carried away dozens of persons who became hysterical as they came into sight of Peron's coffin. Government sources said that Ricard Balbin, head of the Radical Civic Union, the nation's second largest political group behind the Peronist party, had called on members of all political parties in the country to hold a general meeting to discuss the nation's political situation.. Radical party sources confirmed that Balbin had met with several political leaders. "The 78(-year-old strongman ruler of the 1940s and 1950s died of heart failure Monday less than nine months after he won a third presidential term to climax his return from nearly 18 years of exile. There was no official report on the number of persons lined up to view Peron's body, but reporters estimated as many as 300,000 people filed past his casket Tuesday or waited in line to pass by today. The sight of Peron's body, set in a lace-trimmed coffin draped with black, mpved many mourners to weep openly and dozens of others broke down in hysterics. Peron's hands were crossed in repose with a chain of rosary beads said to be a gift from Pope Paul VI entwined in his long fingers. Peron was excommunicated by the Roman Catholic church, but later reconciled with the Vatican. "Watch your nerves, be calm, don't cry and don't be afraid," guards at the congress building warned the many weeping women who passed in front of the coffin. They firmly refused to let anyone but officials touch Peron.

MOSCOW (UPI) — Three American television networks say their connections suddenly went dead Tuesday when they tried to broadcast television news stories about Soviet dissidents 11 to the United States. ABC, CBS and NBC said their correspondents were cut off Tuesday evening as they attempted to send television news accounts by satellite on a hunger strike by Soviet nuclear physicist Andrei D. Sakharov and on the activities of other dissident scientists. After their initial film presentations were cut off,- the correspondents tried to broadcast that fact to their U.S. audiences and were again cut off. Among the broadcasts was one by ABC correspondent Herbert Kaplow, beginning with Sakharov's name. The connection to New York immediately went dead. "They just pulled the plug on us," said ah ABC spokesman in New York. "There it is —for everyone to see —what happens when, a government controls the news," said Richard S. Salant, president of CBS News. Otherwise, the networks reported no interruptions in their coverage of President Nixon's Soviet visit.. An ABC producer in Moscow, Elliott Bernstein, said there had been "complete and total cooperation" from the Soviets up until then with several stories about dissidents having been transmitted earlier in the Nixon visit. Sakharov said his hunger Strike was designed to draw Nixon's attention to the plight of Soviet political prisoners.

Lebanon may ask for Arab boycott at Geneva By United Press' Internatinal Lebanon plans to call for an Arab boycott of the Geneva Middle East peace talks unless the explosive Palestinian- refugee question is added to the agenda, political sources in Cairo said today. The sources said Lebanese Premier Takieddin Solh would make the request a,t this week's Cairo meeting of Arab diplomats and defense ministers to discuss Israeli reprisal raids. The conference, which opens tonight, was also expected to take up such major questions as calls for a reimposition of the Arab oil boycott against the United States and the creation of antiaircraft rings around refugee camps. Israeli warplanes and artillery have increasingly, attacked Palestinian targets in LeDanon during recent months in reprisal for a sharp step-up in Arab guerrilla attacks against Jewish frontier settlements. In Jerusalem, Israeli Defense Minister Shimon Peres said the Soviet Union gave Syria two of Russia's most advanced weap ons —MIG23 warplanes and SAM9 surface-to-air missiles. Peres, in a speech to the Israeli parliament, also said Tuesday Soviet officers "sustained casualties" in last October's Middle East war while serving with forward Syrian command units. The Cairo sources said Solh planned to ask Egypt, Syria and Jordan —the three other Arab, states bordering Israel — to boycott the Geneva peace conference until Israel agrees to discuss the future of the Palestinian refugees.
